    Changing the angle of a linear gradient fill

    Gustavo Del Vechio Level 3

      Hi friends


      Suppose I have an object filled with a linear gradient. This object is the only selected. I just would like to change the angle of the gradient to 25 degrees. So I think I could do:


      var doc = app.activeDocument


      alert(doc.selection[0].fillColor.angle) // the result is the exact angle of the gradient fill of the selected object. Suppose 12 degrees.


      //now the try to change:


      doc.selection[0].fillColor.angle = 25.0




      No errors are found by the Extended Script Toolkit..BUT...it does not change anything. As Illustrator reference manual does not say this property is read only, I think I could write.


      Am I missing anything?


      Thank you a lot for the help

      Best Regards
